Love Potions

I found these Love Potions attributed to Gundella through a Google search. There is no book title given but apparently they were part of one of those Time-Life compilations on witchcraft, spells or something of the sort or at least the website says they are. Another ambiguous lead!

I've also come across a mention of her putting out a cookbook called "Witch in the Kitchen" but I can't confirm the title and find no evidence for it whatsoever although there are several other authors who put out a cookbook with that same moniker. Anyhow, here are the potions:


Combine 1/2 pound of ground beef, 1/2 pound of pork saussage, 1/2

pound of shredded chedder cheese, 1/2 tsp. of oregano, 1/2 tsp. of garlic

powder in a bowl, then spread this pate on thin slices of rye or

pumpernickle bread. Cook the open face sandwiches under a broiler until

the meat is well browned. The oregano and garlic charge the pate with



"Stir together in a saucerpan 2 cups of tomato juice, 1 bay leaf, 1 tsp.

basil, and a dash each of dill and worcestershire sauce. Simmer the

mixture for 3 minutes, then chill in a refrigerator. Strain the

beverage before serving. Dill is reportedly powerful enough to bring

on proposals of marriage, so you may wish to substitute celery salt

unless your intentions are serious."


"Combine 12 oz. of semi-sweet chocalote chips, 12 oz. of butterscotch

chips, and 1 cup of peanut butter in a bowl. Microwave the ingredients

for 4 minutes or melt them in a double boiler. Fold in 10 1/2 oz. of

minature marshmallows, and 1/2 cups of salted peanuts. Spread this

mixture in a 9-by-13 inch pan and refrigerate until set. Adding a

tsp. of cinnamon to the fudge may inspire a marriage proposal."


"Prepare 4 cups of rose hips tea following the directions on the package,

but add 1/2 tsp. of catnip and 1/8 tsp. of crushed rosemary. Let the

tea steep for 8 to 10 minutes, then strain it and serve it unsweetened or

with honey. Roses, long associated with love and beauty, and rosemary,

which have been related to fidelity, are the key ingredients here."

"Witch Gundella is a modern witch her recipes are modern. Her

ingredients can be found in a supermarket and the recipes and are

easy to make."
